Get it girl collective
Girls today are strong and resilient, but there is still a lot of outside noise getting in their way. Negative comments and unequal rules can hurt a young woman's self-esteem, so it's time to create a new, inclusive narrative. Dove and Shonda Rhimes teamed up to launch the Girl Collective, a "multigenerational sisterhood" that challenges stereotypes and builds confident in girls and young women. I'm proud to be a part of this remarkable community which illustrates the magic we can unlock when we work together to inspire change and build confidence. To help foster this sense of sisterhood, the Girl Collective created an online community on Facebook for girls and women to share their ideas and empower one another in a supportive environment.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Kanye West & Sunday Service Collective @ City of Refuge (12/15/19)

Design Inspiration: Get It Girl Collective
The Collective has a goal to ensure girl-led and girl-centered organizations around the world have the resources and platforms they lack and need to drive change.
They believe that core, unrestricted funding unlocks the greatest potential for local organizations to play a leading role in transforming societies and building gender equality. The WFGC funds 20 organizations a year as part of an awards package. Through the With and For Girls Awards, the Collective identifies strong organizations with girls at their center, and provides flexible funding, profile raising opportunities, capacity development support and opportunities to connect and collaborate with other girl-led and centered groups.
The Collective also works with funders to leverage additional resources for girl-led and girl-centered groups, amplifies the work of grassroots groups and girls voices in the media, and influences funding practices so organizations can receive more support to continue to take action and to thrive.
It is important to note that WFGC gives awards, not grants. The awards are core funding that honor and celebrate achievements. We were approached as a collective by various donors who wanted to join. There was interest in girls, and in using this approach of making awards. It is very accessible to the type of organizations it wants to support. The Stars Foundation has staff dedicated to keeping the collective moving.
Stars currently underwrites the staffing costs—which is significant because WFGC members have different requirements for how their funding is spent. Not all the funds are pooled, and many members manage relationships and award reporting directly with award winners. And we work with girl-led and girl-centered organizations specifically so they are able to create the systems change as defined by them in their own contexts.
Self-determination is core. The girls may work with government departments, community leaders or schools. So often, when change is being proposed, girls are absent.
The Collective is sure, however, that providing flexible funding has been key to its achievements. The initial desire was to do thematic funding, but there has since been a shift among partners towards funding movement building.
Kinyili sees that WFGC is also becoming more efficient, in advocacy work around girl-led organizing and in moving more funds to small, community based organizations rather than large international organizations.
The awards process has also engaged 80 adolescent girls aged 14 — 19 as panel judges from all over the world to pick the winners, and in each judging panel was made up of girls from past award-winning organizations.

Welcome to the #GirlCollective
Empowering UK female business owners to start and build a business. It's that simple. My New Year's Resolution this year was to finally get my finances in check and to grow my business. And I'm actually doing both because the IGC keeps me accountable, motivated and on the right track. Julia is phenomenal at breaking down big, scary stuff into yummy bite sized pieces.
How did the Collective form? The best ideas happen when women come together! During a day packed with inspirational speakers and ideas, Kate and Sharon discussed the need for all organizations in Connecticut that serve women and girls to come together to maximize their impact. The Collective is a network that brings participating organizations together to highlight and amplify their work while drawing on the collective power of collaboration and working together. Many organizations in the state of Connecticut are doing critical work to transform the lives of women and girls everywhere.

Defining the female experience is difficult. We are so diverse, but what brings us together is our common experiences. Made up of three illustrators and one producer, these women have made …. Made up of three illustrators and one producer, these women have made it their mission to spread positivity throughout the female community. With Get it Girl we really wanted to create a fun environment where we can freely explore different styles and methods on topics that excite us or mean a lot to us. Collaborating has been a really cool way to see how one idea can be translated in so many different ways through our individual approaches to our monthly themes. Without them knowing it or not, Disney films brought them together, influencing their work and igniting their strong dedication to illustration. They can be found posting daily on IG and on their website. You must be logged in to post a comment.
As a teenager in Poland, illustrator Justyna Stasik avoided doing her homework in favour of making collages and doodling. She continued this hobby throughout university surprisingly, not art school experimenting with a Wacom tablet. It was only when Justyna landed an internship at a game tech startup that she really honed her craft. Like the Lena Dunham piece about finding coziness in a struggle with chronic pain for New York Times or the article about the weirdness of experiencing jet lag for Outline Mag.

CT Collective for Women and Girls
As the world grows more connected — through displaced populations, the internet, and accessible travel — we need to find ways of adapting positively and supportively to these new circumstances. Laura Doggett and her organization, Another Kind of Girl Collective, which promotes the films and photography of Syrian refugee girls living in Jordan, are wonderful examples of this. While speaking to Laura on Skype and email over several months, I was struck by her devotion to helping these young women tell their unique stories to the rest of the world. I also spoke to two girls in the camps, Khaldiya Jibawi and Marah Al Hassan, over Skype with the help of Tasneem Toghoj, the co-facilitator of the collective, who also acted as our translator. I was struck by their bravery and determination to make something out of their circumstances and lives. I wanted to reflect this in my own work, so I decided to write this piece to show an example of people from different cultures coming together to talk, bond, and work together.
Get it Girl Collective
Since its inception in , the With and For Girls Collective; a group of funders who want to see a world where girls are heard, respected, able to access services and are included in decision-making processes that affect them; has had the incredible privilege to support, work alongside, and learn from girls and their organisations, through their unrelenting work to serve their communities and have their voices heard. They continue to show us every day why it is so important for philanthropic funding to support girl-led groups. As a Collective, we believe funders can, and must, play a leadership role in addressing the lack of resources available to grassroots girl-centred and girl-led organisations who we know are still under-recognised, under-represented and under-funded. To further our learning as a Collective we embarked on an independent evaluation to improve, not only our own processes, but also to encourage other donors to take similar steps in centering powerful girl-led groups and understand why grassroots girl-led and girl-centred organisations need to be supported by flexible funding to propel transformational change towards a more equitable world. The With and For Girls Awards identify strong organisations with girls at their centre and provides them with flexible funding, profile raising opportunities and training. The research confirms the Collective has made significant strides to achieve increased recognition and resources available to strong girl-led and girl-centered organisations through involving and amplifying the voices and perspectives of girls. In terms of the collective approach to funding, the research has recommended that:. More time considerations be given to the complexities of working collaboratively, as this takes more time and planning than working alone.
